Lifespan- 70-100 years. You replace 3-4 shingle roofs in that amount of time.
Tax credit-in 2017 you will GET 30% of the TOTAL COST of ROOF BACK in Energy Star Tax Credits.
Energy savings-Up to 40%. Solar energy is reflected instead of baking into the home as with asphalt shingles.
Lower Insurance- 35% savings annually. Most insurance companies will give you a discount on your homeowner’s insurance if you install a new metal roof. Metal roofs are Class 4 Impact Resistant and have a 140mph wind warranty, also effective in fire prevention.
Resell value- 89% of total cost of roof. If you were to sell your home would recoup an 89.5% of cost of the metal roof and receive a full 6% resale value gain over a home roofed with asphalt shingles- reported by Sal Alfano of Remodeling Magazine
